Rock Creek Restoration and Enhancement Phase II

  • GRMW ID: 1923
  • Fiscal Year: 2014

The vision of the project is to restore degraded riparian and floodplain habitat, improve instream habitat diversity, and improve water quality for adult and juvenile summer steelhead and juvenile Chinook salmon. This vision follows the landowners request to improve fish habitat on his property, which is located in a BiOp high priority recovery area, and is consistent with the Tribes “First Foods” concept, which manages the ecosystem based on protection of water, fish, deer and elk, roots, and berries. Project objectives include habitat protection, re-activating the historic floodplain and associated channel network, increasing hyporheic connectivity and cold water refuge, facilitating vegetative recovery, increasing instream habitat complexity, and encouraging long-term beaver re-colonization.\r\n\r\nPhase I of this project was facilitated by BPA through the CTUIR Accord, OWEB, NRCS and CREP funds in 2013. Phase II is scheduled to start construction in 2014 and conclude in 2016.
